Farrah Abraham would not shame her daughter for having piercings. On TikTok Thursday, the Teen Mom star, 31, posted a video of her daughter Sophia having six facial piercings for her 14th birthday.

“HAPPY 14th Birthday! #snakebite & #earlobe piercing party! 6 piercings later #snakebitepiercings you match your snake 🐍 can you even eat your cake? 🎂,” Abraham captioned her post.

Some parents criticized Abraham in the comments section for allowing her daughter to have the piercings, but she told InTouch Weekly in a statement that she “won’t be shaming my daughter.”

“I LOVE and support Sophia 100 percent on who and what she wants to become,” she added to the outlet. “The mom shamers should recognize what some kids will grow out of and what they [will not]. That’s part of a teen journey as I don’t have my belly button piercing anymore.”

“I have all the compassion for her as I wish I had as a teen,” Abraham continued said of Sophia, noting that she loves “having a teenager.” A representative for Abraham did not immediately reply to a request for comment from PEOPLE.

When Sophia got a septum piercing for her 13th birthday last year, Abraham received backlash from mom shamers.

“I think her generation of 13 is much different than my generation of 13. Sophia is the first … in my family to get a septum piercing, especially at 13,” Farrah told TMZ at the time. “… I would rather it be by a professional, sanitized and clean, than my teen going, sneaking off and doing it herself and getting an infection.”

Though she first stated that she “wasn’t for it,” Abraham later stated that Sophia “did better than her COVID shot – I am shocked,” before addressing those who may have been upset by her daughter’s bling.

“To those who might feel it is inappropriate that my daughter got her nose professionally done, legally done, I’m all about being legal,” she explained. “We abided by the law. I am doing my best as a parent to make sure that she is healthy and happy, and I covered those bases. So congratulations to Sophia. I’m wishing her the best in her teen years, and if she wants to get more piercings, more power to her.”

Abraham rose to fame in June 2009 after appearing on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. In the years since, she has appeared in other Teen Mom spinoffs, including Teen Mom, Teen Mom OG, and Teen Mom: Family Reunion.

Abraham gave birth to Sophia, the father of whom was her former lover, Derek Underwood, in 16 and Pregnant.
